Top-Notch “Jersey Boys” to Close at Paris Las Vegas

The stand-out, Broadway-style musical, “Jersey Boys,” has announced it will close at Paris Las Vegas on Sep. 18, 2016.

The closure of “Jersey Boys” means Las Vegas will soon have approximately 37% less legit musical theater, reflecting a worldwide trend of people sort of wanting there to be less musical theater, even when it’s pretty good.

Three months notice means you can still catch this show before it shutters. Get on that, already.

“Jersey Boys,” which features a fictionalized account of the story of Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons, closes after an impressive run of nearly 3,300 performances.

That’s 23 years in Las Vegas show years.

“Jersey Boys” opened at Paris Las Vegas on March 6, 2012, with all the requisite hoopla. Prior to that, it played at Palazzo Las Vegas. The show made its Las Vegas debut in April 2008.

Here’s at look at the original cast when the show opened at Paris Las Vegas.

On March 21, 2013, “Jersey Boys” celebrated its fifth anniversary in Las Vegas. Four Seasons members Bob Gaudio and Frankie Valli were on-hand, too.

What, you thought we were kidding about Franki Valli taking part?

Yes, the actual Frankie Valli. And, yes, he’s still alive.

Ticket sales for “Jersey Boys” have flagged in recent months, despite being a stand-out among shows on the Las Vegas Strip. Ultimately, it’s just run its course after eight years.

Caesars Entertainment, which owns Paris Las Vegas, hasn’t announced what’s next for the hotel’s Le Theatre des Arts, other than the fact it will soon have fewer of Le Four Seasons.

    I originally saw Jersey Boys on Broadway in NYC, I can see where a show would just simply run out of steam. I have seen the show once, not really thinking that many people would pay to see it twice. Loved the show, but paying twice to see the same show…………..NO!!!!!!

    • Yeah, it’s been a run, though!

      • Todd Sterling

        Yes it has

      I dunno. I have seen it four or five times. Plus many new people are coming and visiting so shows get a new collection of potential first time attendees on a daily basis.

    What is the other 63 percent legit musical theater?

    • “Showstoppers,” “Menopause”? Quasi-legit!
